I have no immediate intention to take over upstream, since I believe
it to be responsive enough, my sturdieness concerns at the moment only
the revival of the Debian package maintenance.

The package did (and does) inactivate the SSL-library because of the
license clash against GPL. According to the records in BTS, some efforts
to develop a patch to use GnuTLS instead of OpenSSL was begun, but they
never reached completion. Springtime will reveal whether I can do any

For the learning experience I will develop a second version of my
presently updated (which by the way works very well with a better
provisions to use the capacities inherent in Webfs) to use the
new 3.0-quilt format.
